To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to White County Magistrate Court Chief Judge Joy R. Parks on her recent reappointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as a Superior Court judge for the Enotah Judicial Circuit, covering Lumpkin, Towns, Union and White counties.
Judge Parks will be well served by her 25 years of experience in the legal profession, including her service as Magistrate Court judge and in the private practice of law. She is also a valued member of the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia.
With her acceptance of this appointment, Judge Parks demonstrates her ongoing commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish her well in this new capacity of judicial leadership.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
